Victory for Diddly Squat? Rishi Sunak vows to free farmers from planning red tape when converting barns to farm shops (after Jeremy Clarkson's huge rows with his local council) as PM welcomes TV star Kaleb Cooper to No10

Rishi Sunak today vowed to slash red tape for farmers looking to turn old barns into shops as he welcomed Clarkson's Farm star Kaleb Cooper to Downing Street.

The Prime Minister set out plans to make it easier for British farmers to diversify their incomes, such as through setting up farm shops on their land.

Under the Government's proposals, farmers would no longer need to seek permission from local councils to repurpose farm buildings.

The move comes after the much-publicised travails of Jeremy Clarkson, documented in the Amazon Prime show Clarkson's Farm, to turn a profit on his Diddly Squat Farm.

The series has revealed the ex-Top Gear host's many planning battles over his Diddly Squat Farm Shop, as well as his bid to set up a restaurant on his Oxfordshire farm.

Two of the show's stars - Cooper and 'Cheerful' Charlie Ireland, who is Clarkson's land agent - were pictured arriving at No10 today as the PM hosted a farming summit.

As part of a package of support for UK farmers - announced to coincide with the 'Farm to Fork' summit - Downing Street revealed plans to 'increase the resilience' of Britain's farming industry and 'support its growth'.

This includes proposals to 'cut the red tape currently holding farmers back from delivering projects on their land to diversify their incomes, such as repurposing farm buildings to use as shops', No10 added.

A consultation on the proposals will be launched later this year.

Good stuff. You have to think that was a major incentive for Jeremy once he got into this world and realized just how insane it could be.



I'm gonna vote for the funniest frog with the loudest croak on the highest log.

I think it's safe to say that after the first season or, at least half-way through, the issue of government intrusion has become a bigger part of the show than originally thought. The round-table meeting he had with neighboring farmers and hearing the plight that they've all gone through with all the vagaries of government bureaucracy and regulation should've driven home the issues UK farmers have to endure. The issues the women dairy farmer he was purchasing milk and the badger problem on her farm, was particularly poignant.

Most excellent!

So great, can't wait for Season 3!
We loved Clarkson's Farm. I recommended it highly to my Leftist/Socialist/near-Communist brother who lives in England with his commie English wife. Somehow they didn't mention it again.

Clarkson brought an international spotlight of notoriety to the little fiefdoms of local bureaucracy that are often worse--because of lack of openness--than national ones.

Le'me guess, are they in London? Where they're like New Yorkers, living in a massive bubble, disconnected from 'those other people' in the other parts of England? The liberal elite regard Clarkson as a buffoon with too large of a public profile.

If he was an echo chamber for their ideology they'd love his show and him...

Clarkson's an interesting character, I've got to go back to watching the Farm show...

Clarkson's farm is in the NW corner in-between Chipping Norton and Chadlington, that whole area is renown for its classic English villages.

It's still a good show although the formula is starting to wear thin. Jeremy does something brutish, Charlie points out all of his errors. It rains a lot. Animals die.
